This will be my 2nd spawning attempt. I'm using the same set-up except this time I'm using IAL extract and some Java Moss in the spawning tank.I started conditioning today. I will be conditioning for 3-7 days since the female was being conditioned for a different spawning attempt with a different male so she has a head start.
Here are my breeders.
Comes from a multicolor/ MG line.He is a F6 generation.Sibling brother won Best in Show yesterday. He has excellent fins,form,and symmetry.
Age: 4.5 months
Comes from a cambodian butterfly/tricolor line. I believe she carries the DT gene. She has great fins and is a 8 ray female.
My goals for this spawn would be to get a high rate of HM fry. Cyril is a 10+ ray male while Cerise is a 8 ray female. That should give me a higher percentage of HMs in this spawn. I would also like have fry with an excellent form and symmetry like the male. For color I should expect a mixture of various different colors and patterns since the sire comes from a strong line of multicolors. However I'm going to try to focus on finnage first and then color.
